California Bill Would Require State to Post Links to Vaccine Injury Reporting and Vaccine Injury Compensation

Health Impact News Editor Comments

Last year California became the first state in the U.S. to remove the religious exemption for childhood vaccines, in spite of overwhelming opposition from parents, doctors, and other community leaders.

Now, California Assemblyman Travis Allen has introduced legislation that would require the California Health and Human Services Agency to provide information to the public regarding the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System [2] and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program [3], two federally funded resources most of the American public knows nothing about.

How could any lawmaker oppose this freedom of information? If the State is going to mandate vaccines to school children, should not federal information on vaccine injuries be available to the public?

In 2014 the Government Accounting Office (GAO) issued a report on the federal Vaccine Compensation Program [4] criticizing the government for not making the public aware that this program exists. If AB 2832 passes in California, it will become one of the first states to rectify the problems documented by the GAO.

Require the CA Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) to Post Links to Vaccine Injury Reporting and Vaccine Injury Compensation

by National Vaccine Information Center [5]

Your immediate action is needed to help pass AB 2832 Immunizations: vaccine injury information [6]. AB 2832 was introduced by Assemblyman Travis Allen. If passed, AB 2832 would add Section 120456 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to immunizations to read:

SECTION 1.120456. The California Health and Human Services Agency shall maintain a conspicuous link to federal resources related to vaccine injuries on its Internet Web site, including, but not limited to, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System [2] and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. [3]

AB 2832 is necessary because many who have serious vaccine reactions do not know about federal vaccine injury reporting or vaccine injury compensation and the related statutory time limits for receiving compensation. The state health department has multiple postings on their website promoting vaccines and yet fails to responsibly provide important information for when vaccination injures or kills someone.

The bill should also be amended to include requirements for links to the FDA Vaccines, Blood & Biologics [7] page that references the vaccine manufactures package inserts for all federally licensed vaccines in the U.S. These package inserts are rarely provided by vaccine administrators, and they contain important contraindication and side effect information. These federal links need to be prominently displayed on all State, County and School District web sites where vaccine rules, regulations and/or mandates are mentioned.

In addition to asking your Assembly Member to support the bill, also ask him/her to support any amendments that expand the posting requirements to include additional State sites like the Immunization Branch [8] of the California Department of Public Health [9] (CDPH), CDPH Shots for School [10], the California Department of Education [11] (CDE} Immunization and Health Checkup – CalEdFacts. [12] Public and private schools, preschools and daycare providers, school districts and County Boards of Health and Education also need to include links to VAERS, NVICP, and FDA Vaccines, Blood & Biologics on their websites, and in their enrollment packages.

Californians are entitled to know the federal programs available to them in a timely manner. If they or their family member is injured or dies because of an adverse reaction to vaccines, claims must be filed within 24 months of a death and 36 months of an injury. [13] It is incumbent upon the State of California Health and Human Services and related departments to provide prominent and immediate access to these federal vaccine injury programs.


1. Contact your Assembly Member by phone and email, and schedule an appointment in the local district office to meet with the staff member who advises your Assembly Member on health issues. Ask them to support AB 2832 as introduced and to support any amendments to include posting requirements for all related state, county and school websites that reference immunization rules, regulations and/or mandates.

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?

doctors-on-the-vaccine-debate [28]

One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this article, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.
